The very small. Amount of literature out there is between absolutely no effect and ambivalent when compared to sham air. So, there is no proof it works. I am all for anything that might help, but too many people spend the little bit of life savings they have on these therapies with false guarantees and I do not think that it appropriate. Hbot is good for many things, CP and autism are not them.
Can be very. The literature suggests tha hbot can be very helpful for both of the conditions.
Not effective. There is no evidence that using hyperbaric oxygen is effective in treating autism. The costs can be considerable so beware of false promises and hopes.
HBOT ; autism. 1 study assessed the effects of increasing hyperbaric pressure by 3 to 30% in 2 to 7 Y.O. Children w autism spectrum disorders over 40 1 hour txs. There was reported “significant” improvement in 30% of children under pressure vice 8% in control group. I don't know what "significant " means. I don't believe that there is “proof” that hbot helps autism ; there are many intrinsic risks to hyperbaric.
The neuro my 2 year old daughter sees is testing her for autism and that's it. I think she may have cerebral palsy how can I get her tested.!?
Hx & Exam. The definition of CP is a disorder of movement & posture due to injury to the developing nervous system that ocrurred anytime from pregnancy to 3 yrs of age. If you have seen a neuro & s/he is not concerned about the kids movements, you have been checked. However, there are mild forms of CP that may not become evident untill more refined movements are expected as an older child.
State & local EI. Take your daughter for a multi-disciplinary team evaluation of all areas of her development at the idea part c early intervention program in youngstown. 25% delays in 2 areas or a 50% delay in 1 area confer eligibility. No referral nor diagosis is needed. At the ifsp, request occupational & physical therapy evals, an ados to clarify the degree of autism & a d/b pede evaluation for etiology.
Discuss with neuro. I would have a discussion of your concerns about your child's condition with her neurologist. Make sure you understand what is on the neurologistsmind and what can be done to answer the question about cerebral palsy.
My son has cerebral palsy, autism, mental retardation, catatonic schizophrenia, seizures, & no lower left lope of brain what is his life expectancy?
Who knows! So sorry about your son. All of his conditions you could think might cause a shorter life span for all sorts of reasons, but with good care one never knows. Accidents, poor nutrition (because he doesn't eat well), progressive brain deterioration if repeated seizures, infections, general stress with its harmful physical effects, all could contribute to premature death. Best of luck!
Hard to say. If you haven't already done so you need to find the local arc chapter. These often provide access to information on these issues, and access to other parents dealing with the problems at different ages. My experience is that most make it into their teens, but depending on their health issues may not make it past their twenties. The hard road ahead is better shared with those in similar situations.
My son has cerebral palsy, autism, catatonic schizophrenia, seizures, mental retardation, lower left lobe of brain is missing, strabismus and was born?
Cerebral palsy. Needs long term treatment periodicaly medications shall shall need adjustment.
Multiple conditions. It sounds like your son has many challenges. You do not mention his age, but the under age 3 the early intervention program and over 3 your local school district provide services at no charge. Families with exceptional children have a lot of stress so make sure to take care of yourself. Check with your sons doctor for local services that can help you.
Etiology (cause)? Could something have disrupted development of the fetal brain, which forms the 3rd-10th week after conception ; continues to form during pregnancy ; beyond? With a referral from your pediatrician, a pediatric neurologist, developmental/behavioral pediatrician, ; geneticist can look for genetic ; other medical causes of your son's condition. Unfortunately, a cause is not always found.
